There will be no appointments required.  The clinics will be open to anybody aged 12+ for the first and second doses; however, the third dose will be available exclusively to those who meet the above-mentioned qualifying conditions.

“This is exceptional news for Windsor-Essex County. The Community Response and Stabilization Team (CRST) was pleased to help when called upon by WECHU to provide this extended outreach and access to vaccines within our high priority communities. We know that third-dose booster shots are vital to maintaining safety and minimizing burden for some of our most vulnerable, including healthcare workers,” said Kristin Kennedy, President and CEO of Erie Shores HealthCare. “First and second doses and outbreak testing also remain the key focus of the Community Response and Stabilization Team.”

Third doses of COVID-19 vaccine will also be available via area pharmacies and health care professionals, as well as by appointment at the Mass Vaccination Centre in Windsor’s
Devonshire Mall.  Learn more here.
